Known Problems

The manual transmission may "pop" out of 5th gear, this is most commonly caused by a faulty 5th gear synchronizer. Our technicians tell us a revised 5th gear synchronizer is available to correct this concern.

An engine oil leak may develop from the front crankshaft seal due to hardening of the rubber seal. There is a revised seal and sleeve available to correct this concern. Our technicians tell us that changing the oil every 3000 miles may help prolong seal life.

The brake pedal may pulsate upon brake apply. The common causes are overheating from heavy braking an/or improper wheel torque. Our technicians tell us that brake pads and rotors should be replaced to correct this concern. Problems may arise from aftermarket rotors due to quality concerns. This applies to both front and rear disk brakes.

A condition may develop where the accelerator pedal sticks and is not smooth. This can be caused by carbon build up on the throttle shaft or throttle body cleaner was used which removed the special coating on the throttle shaft. Our technicians tell us that if this is the case the throttle body should be replaced.

The front wheel alignment may not stay within specifications due to faulty welds on the lower control arms. Our technicians tell us that Suzuki will replace the affected control arms free of charge.

An oil leak may develop form the right front axle seal. Our technicians tell us a revised axle seal is available to correct this concern.

Multiple electrical system failures may be due to defective or damaged insulation at the wiring harness inside the left front fender liner. Any damaged wires should be properly repaired and repositioned to avoid further damage.

Erratic fuel gauge readings may be caused by additives in the fuel. Our technicians tell us an improved fuel tank sender unit is available to correct this concern.

A icking type noise may be noted when starting the engine cold. This is commonly caused by bleed down of the hydraulic valve lifters. Our technicians recommend to make sure the engine oil is clean and at the correct level, then run the engine for 20 minutes at 2,000 rpm. If this does not correct the fault the valve lifters should be replaced.

The T-top mechanism may jam or not operate properly requiring replacement of the locking mechanism.

Wheel hub noise may can be caused by excess axle shaft hub clearance. Redesigned wheel hubs are available to correct this concern. Our technicians recommend to check the axle nut torque prior to replacing any components.
